Australia's Qantas says all staff must be vaccinated

Frontline workers including pilots, cabin crew and airport staff must be fully vaccinated by mid-November.

The company says its remaining employees have until the end of March next year to receive both doses.

It comes as the state of New South Wales reported its biggest daily rise in coronavirus infections.

The Australian flag carrier is the country's biggest, most high-profile company to introduce a mandatory vaccination policy.

The staff include the Senior Management Team and Board of Directors.

At present AVL has not made it compulsory for staff to be vaccinated, although it intends to do so.

“Those who are yet to be vaccinated due to various reasons are currently restricted from working on the front-line. AVL supports the Vaccination Programme and encourages all residents of Vanuatu to be vaccinated, as vaccination becomes available to them through the Vaccine Rollout Programme,” AVL said.

The Vaccination Programme will be rolled out to Tanna and Santo in the next few months.
